Cliff has been working overtime coming up with so many reviews in such a short time.

Samsung WB2000/TL350 looks interesting, this should be the target of your forthcoming reviews. The image quality is comparable/close to those from LX3/5 and S90/95 except for the price.

OLYMPUS is a horrible brand with a pathetic after sales. I had bought an FE5050 camera on my trip to switzerland in Dec 2010. When I downloaded the pictures, it were all looking awful. I contacted OLYMPUS and dealer the second day but they are unwilling to do the refund. It is one month now I am chasing with no result. PLEASE DONT GET TRAPPED BY OLYMPUS. This is a horrible BRAND. Please note guys. Go for Canon or Sony or Nikon
